Shyama and Rishu dance for Vibha's Vibe
Fundraising for Dallas Vibe 2020
One of our goals for 2020 is to create an impact on the world around us. We have therefore decided to put on our dancing shoes to raise awareness and funds for Vibha. Vibe 2020, Dancing for a Cause, is an exciting fundraiser for Vibha- whose core goal is to Educate, Empower and Enable children through education. Based roughly on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ TV show, this event features local celebrities, our “Stars”, in a dance face-off on the event night. The event will be held on Feb 29th, at Grand Center in Plano Texas. We are one of the "Stars" and are training hard to Compete in this dance off.
Did you know? While elementary school enrollment levels in India have touched historical highs (97%), it drops significantly (to 56%) by the time a child reaches senior secondary level. And of the enrolled students only 70% on an average make it to school every day. Learning outcomes are also poor - per the 2018 Annual Survey of Education Report only a quarter of all third graders surveyed are at grade level in terms of math and reading skills, while only half of all children surveyed can read and less than a third can do basic arithmetic.
Vibha wants to enable solutions to problems like these. Our volunteers are constantly on the look out for scalable, sustainable and replicable models that can meaningfully address the root cause. Outcomes matter, and the bar is always set high for trust and transparency, one that was recognized with the 2019 Top Rated Award from GreatNonProfits and the 2019 GuideStar Platinum Seal, which puts Vibha in the top 0.1% of over 2 Million listed non-profits.
The efforts of Vibha currently empower almost 2.3 million children in India. We can't do it without your love and support. Rishu and I have a goal of raising $10,000 through our campaign. We are specifically campaigning to raise money for children in Andhra Pradesh for Sikshana. Will you join our movement?
